What to do in Southern Spain

Head to Southern Spain for a long weekend or add these two cities to your trip to Portugal or Morocco for a taste of the Moorish influence in Seville and Granada.

Beautiful Southern Spain

Seville

Seville is home to the world’s largest gothic cathedral. You can climb up to take in fantastic views of the city.  The streets are lined with orange trees and in winter you can see the fruit dotting the trees. Other attractions include the Archaeological Museum, the Maria Luisa Park and numerous cafes. You can try churros, sangria and tapas from late afternoon into the night.  Make sure you check out a flamenco show as well to experience the passionate and emotional dance.

Granada

Granada was once the region’s most regal cities during the Muslim rule of Spain.  All this history is captured within the Alhambra, a masterpiece of Islamic art and architecture. Get tickets in advance to visit to this architectural masterpiece, as tickets sell out daily.

In the evening go for a stroll and check out the local tapas and wine bars. The city is filled with trendy tapas bars and has a lively music scene.
